I am using XP on a laptop. When I connect an external monitor I only see my desktop picture on the external monitor but laptop is as normal. Fn keys do not change anything.

✔ Best Answer
Check the graphics settings - you've probably got it set to 'extended desktop' (you can check this by seeing if the mouse moves off of the laptop screen and appears on the external monitor) rather than duplicating the desktop, which would have the desktop image, icons, mouse etc. duplicated.
